/pony/‘s Last Hurrah EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829824

As we head into the final season, I think it’d be nice if everyone from throughout /pony/‘s history stopped by in the series finale thread to say hey for one last time, bid FiM farewell, and say what the show meant to them. I’m posting this now because I know how slow this board is, and I expect old faces will probably pop in at least once between now and then, and will hopefully see this.

I remember back in the golden era of FiM, our episode threads could get over a thousand posts. We were a pretty vibrant community, and while I don’t expect us to get near that again, it’d be great if our last episode thread was something to remember.

So whether you watch the show still or not, even if you got off after season 2 or 3, keep it in the back of your mind to post here in the series finale thread, which will most likely be some time around October.

Soooo, whatcha thinking? We recount old memories of the series? The fun times we shared? Hopes for the future?

Personally, this was my first ever fandom, and the series that actually made me think critically about fiction. It actually helped enjoy episodes more during season 2, but after that it became the show's undoing in my eyes. Maybe if I'd come in during season 3, things would be different. Or maybe I wouldn't have gotten interested at all. But this show has allowed me to meet so many people and learn so many things, I'm deeply happy it existed.

Whatever you want, really. Talk about the episode, if you watch it, talk about the show, talk about your final thoughts. It would just be really awesome if everyone who’s ever been a regular here would stop by one last time in the series finale thread, and contribute whatever came to mind.

First caught up to the series between Stare Master and The Show Stoppers back during the show's first season (still remember how they used to air new episodes around lunchtime on Friday, when most everyone would normally be at school or work). Started coming to this site I believe around the first hiatus between seasons.

Admittedly, I haven't been around as much, just setting up episode threads lately. Life's been getting busier for me, and I have troubles making time, plus I guess just not being as sucked in as when I first joined. Still, it's been a major part of my life this past decade. What a ride.

I came into the series during Winter Wrap-up, and fell off during season 4. I haven't actually seen anything past the first couple episodes of season 5, but the series ending still feels a little sad. I just came in here on a whim from another site and not planning on sticking around, but I hope you all have a fun final episode, and that it lives up to the expectations. Stay frosty, everyone.

I used to go by "Heartmend" back in the day! Now I go by "ArrJaySketch" pretty much everywhere.

Thanks to friends who had been MLP collectors since the 80s, I heard about the show early on! I started watching the day after it premiered, and had a lot of fun watching weekly episodes.I didn't realize there was a fandom growing until March of 2011, and that's when I started posted here! I remember waiting for PensivePine / PensivePony to upload episodes to her channel (back when episodes aired on Fridays, before people started streaming!)

Back when streaming started to be a thing, it was ridiculous fun to watch Season 1 episodes as they aired, live! I loved all the discussions and all the silliness back then.

I remember starting a lot of the discussion & anticipation threads for the weekly episodes! I remember how this board used to be /ep/, and /oat/ used to be /pony/. People would take a massive amount of screencaps from each episode and post them in /pic/.I remember participating in the thread where the director at the time, Jayson Thiessen, posted in a thread early on!

I really do have Pony to thank to help me out in one of the darkest times in my life. I was already suffering from bad depression and burnout, and the show really did give me a sense of hope I hadn't felt in over a decade in 2010. Since then, I've taken back control of my life and feel much better about everything. It's not just the cartoon that made me feel so good, but the community, and the friends I've made along the way.

Forgive the necromancy, but I remembered this thread and thought it's more relevant now than ever. Let's get our best old memories in and have a big old reminiscing party!

Personally, I remember the great times I had arguing about episode themes and choices back in season 2. There was one time I had a big argument with Geldon about whether or not Iron Will was a bad guy in Putting Your Hoof Down, and we both came out with a much deeper understanding of the subtext and intention behind the episode. Really wish anyone discussed episodes like that anymore...

This is obviously an excellent use of necromancy, if it’s a thread I made.

I suppose my favorite memories were Derpy’s birth in The Last Roundup, and the fact our episode reaction threads would get HUNDREDS, if not 1,000+ replies regularly. I appreciated the initial community reaction to both Derpy and new episodes.

I always thought ponychan was a gay little circlejerk but I hope you all had fun over these past few years.

Dulset Tarn !KelpieFM3QCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36831315

Remember back in season 1 when those awesome CMC episodes were seen as the worst thing in the show?

You know, I wonder if ever since we saw what Tartarus is like, anyone has remembered a funny old quote from way back in season 1...
"She might banish you from Equestria. Or throw you in a dungeon! Or banish you and then throw you in a dungeon in the place that she banishes you to!"

I will still pop in and out infrequently!

Cause why the marshmallow not?

Remember when people were saying that Dash really shouldn't want to be part of an organization as consistently negligent and badly behaved as the Wonderbolts? People had some really fun ideas about her either starting her own team, or whipping the Bolts into shape with Loyalty, since they were so awful nearly every time they showed up.

So What should we do then to wait for G5?

Pick another couple of shows still in production or in heavy circulation.

Martha Speaks isn't as great as MLP but was made by Studio B and has plenty of music and a theme song by Daniel Ingram.

There are plenty of archives of Rapunzel's Tangled Adventures which is on their third season mid point hiatus at the moment. Brilliant music and a fairly nice overall story arc.

And, of course, the obligatory Rick and Morty series which is starting their fourth short season tonight on AS. They're streaming the first episode tonight. Not honestly looking forward to the rest of the series now that the pressure to get seasonal renewals is gone. The stuff they've already shown from con appearances isn't looking that promising.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
